CEWE at photokina: Market leader shows new photo products and takes a glance into the future

From 26 to 29 September photokina is showcasing itself in Cologne as the leading trade fair in the photo industry. As a market leader in photofinishing, CEWE is again one of the largest exhibitors and present with a stand in Hall 4.2, where numerous new products and innovations are on display.

 All CEWE products within your grasp
CEWE is presenting the whole world of photo products in an area of more than 1300 square metres-first and foremost the CEWE PHOTOBOOK with all of its available formats, paper types and highlights. Also on display will be CEWE CALENDAR, CEWE WALL ART and CEWE GREETING CARDS as well as photo gifts, mobile phone cases and Advent calendars. There will also be CEWE kiosks with the popular CEWE INSTANT PHOTOS.

Presentation of new trade fair products and smart solutions
Both on the presentation tables and on the stage, CEWE is presenting all of its new products, which will be immediately available for customers to order. One genuine highlight is a new product in the area of CEWE WALL ART, which uses entirely new shapes for specially showcasing items in any room. Moreover, this year there is also a focus on the future with the topic of smart solutions. CEWE has multiple innovative concepts for showing how the use of new technologies can serve as inspiration for the future of intelligent photo organisation and the creation of photo products. The CEWE stage will have regular presentations about these product studies.

User presentations on ordering software and products
photokina is also the trade fair for users: The presentations and workshops on CEWE ordering software and on how to create a CEWE PHOTOBOOK are traditionally quite popular. Moderators Andreas Scholz and Thorsten Schütte, who are known from YouTube and the CEWE website, will be providing a live guide through the software as well as valuable tips and tricks for various products.
